Special Collections & Archives houses the UCI Libraries' collections of manuscripts and archives, rare books, and notable subject collections.
Archival collecting areas of particular strength and distinction include regional history (emphasizing Orange County and Southern California), the Southeast Asian Archive, the Critical Theory Archive (including the papers of Jacques Derrida, Wolfgang Iser, Paul de Man, and others), the University Archives (documenting the UC Irvine campus), dance and the performing arts (including the papers of Robert Cohen and choreographers Donald Mc Kayle and Eugene Loring), and distinguished UCI faculty (including Nobel Laureates Frederick Reines and Sherwood Rowland).
Special Collections & Archives seeks to document the history of Orange County from the mission period through the present: collection strengths include urban planning and development, the Irvine Ranch and the City of Irvine, environmental issues, city histories, political issues and leadership, LGBTQ history, visual and performing arts, as well as under-documented ethnic communities (including Southeast Asian Americans, Korean Americans, African Americans, Chicano/Latino Americans, Persian Americans, Native Americans, and refugee communities).
The Special Collections & Archives collections include photographs, family papers, organizational records, maps, postcards, newspapers, government documents, books, serials, and ephemera.
How on god's green earth, you ask yourself, did the prospect that someone might have abused children suddenly become a matter of left and right?
Let this be known: George Pell's politics are of zero interest to me.
But it also strikes me that when you are someone, like they are, who interprets everything in the world from a single, unshakeable, ideological standpoint, you make the erroneous assumption that everyone else does too. Journalists, unlike people who rant at clouds for a living, are constantly required to look into things that perhaps challenge our world view.
The University of California, Irvine Libraries seeks a knowledgeable, innovative, and dynamic professional for the position of Archivist for Orange County Regional History in the Department of Special Collections &Archives.
The Archivist participates in archival processing, metadata, and cataloging activities for relevant special collections materials and digital projects.But this is Australia's most senior Catholic cleric.He's a man who for years was telling the rest of us how to live our lives – not least how to live our sex lives (a matter with which, as I document in Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell, he was somewhat preoccupied).We are committed to the University’s goal of diversity and inclusive excellence.
The Libraries consist of the Langson Library, the Ayala Science Library, the Library Gateway Study Center, and the Grunigen Medical Library.
Nearly 67% of UCI students identify themselves as Asian American, African American, Chicano/Latino, or Native American. Librarians at the University of California Irvine are academic appointees and receive potential career status at the time of their initial appointment.
